Reminiscing Along the Conestoga: Memorabilia of Michael and Emma Burkholder and the Community Where They Persevered

Lester Burkholder

  • 1195


This story explores the history of the Burkholder and Martin families who settled in the Weaverland Valley (Lancaster Co., Pa.) along the Conestoga River in the early 1700s. It is filled with "voices from the past" whose words are especially meaningful as they are of a personal nature, coming from an ancestor of a person's lineage. Many landmarks and events that influenced these early families are explored and explained in a community where everyone knew everyone else. (113pp. illus. Author, 2003.)
